Various people are telling me this is an alright hold of perhaps above mediocre proportions! I have faith in them, and offer michthro chances to see the number 1 flash on his screen approximately 7 times.

I am kind and generous like that.

Twenty minutes was about right. 2S2W was my favorite room, but they were all great. Now, I might just go look at those scrolls.

Keep up the good work.

Steve.

You've got to be kidding. There's nothing he could possibly put on a scroll that would be worth the effort of clearing all the tar out of 2S3W.

I randomly called it twenty minutes because I figured it would take like, five

it's taking everyone twenty minutes

this is kind of terrifying

I for one thought it was a great hold! I really hope you continue to build stuff Banjooie, you seem to be pretty gifted. 8 with 6.5 brains.

Trust me Stephen, you don't want to know what the scroll says. If you really wanted to know, just check in the editor! It's anyone edit. :) Ahh... forget that. I didn't see Tahnan's post. :P

Great hold, Banjooie! The Slayer/Halph room (2S2W) was excellent. Really, all the rooms in the hold are very fun and innovating. Heh, this hold actually took me 34 minutes! You lied, liar!

I gave this hold an 8 and 6 brains. Keep making holds, Banj!

Yeah, it took me quite a bit more than 20 minutes, but mainly because I couldn't figure out how to get the Slayer to back away just right.

That does seem to be the hard room in the hold. I just went nuts practicing slayer manipulation when people talked about how to kill him, I guess? I don't know.

I find it odd that this hold is rated as harder than KDD. Really, really odd.

It took me 8 minutes and I give it a 6 with 2 1/2 brains. Not bad.

I rushed through this, thinking I wouldn't be able to get it done in under 20 minutes. Then it ended up only taking 12 minutes.

As for the puzzles, they mostly relied on hack + slash, and manipulation. The tar rooms were pretty tedious though.

He told you not to read the scroll.

I did, I mean, it was literally a goddamn thing, right there, 'don't read the scroll, it's not worth it'

Also, I will continue to never finish that one hold I was doing that was kind of cool sort of.

Nice hold for a quick DROD session! Good, simple puzzles, not tedious at all. I give it a 7 for fun, and a 4 for difficulty.

Oh, and here's me very inefficiently clearing 2S3W of tar. You knew people were going to do that when you put it there. ;)

Well, yes. However, I was very firm on the point that you did not and frankly /should/ not actually do it.

See, when I was making the room, I realized 'Incredible. This room would be the worst room ever if you actually had to clear the tar.' I could make a secret room that WAS this room except you had to clear the tar, but then I'd be basically the worst person ever. So I just said 'technically you can, have this dumb reward for doing it'.

Fun hold. Mostly because you set the goal to complete it as fast as possible :)

That was an excellent adventure! I am impressed, Banjooie! Please continue your project! You are quite the architect! I should stop shouting!

First room was probably the hardest, since it takes a while to logic out the solution. Curiously, Once South and Twice South, Twice West were the easiest rooms of the hold, oddly enough. Maybe I am too used to slayer manipulation?

Overall, a great experience to just about anyone that plays. Highly recommended! :thumbsup
